[lfs-support] expr core dump

Hi guys,

I had a problem to recompile a kernel in LFS-7.7 chroot and after some
debug efforts got to conclusion that it is due to expr problem. If I
run a simple example I get a core dump:

$ expr 7 \* 9
Illegal instruction (core dumped)

$ expr --version
expr (GNU coreutils) 8.23

If I run the same in Ubuntu, it works fine.
$ expr 7 \* 9
$ expr --version
expr (GNU coreutils) 8.21

Have anyone noticed such a problem with expr/coreutils latest version?
